Ronaldo refuses to call time on career

Brazilian striker Ronaldo insists he is not thinking of retiring and that he still has much more to offer.

The three-time FIFA World Player of the Year is on the brink of a return to football after recovering from a career-threatening knee injury sooner than expected.

And Ronaldo, who has been training with Flamengo, cannot wait to get back on the pitch and prove his doubters wrong.

"I want to stop playing when I decide, not because I have been forced to by an injury," he told Brazilian magazine Trip.

"In the book of my career there are still a lot of blank pages to write upon, and I want to finish while scoring goals."

Ronaldo sustained the injury eight months ago while playing for AC Milan and since becoming a free agent in the summer, offers have been pouring in for the 32-year-old.

Paris St Germain and Manchester City are among the European clubs reportedly keen to acquire his services, and Ronaldo has revealed that he could soon be facing AC Milan in Serie A.

He added: "There's an offer from an Italian club, but it's not Milan."
